Holocaust survivors share their story with younger generations

Rochester Jews work to preserve the memory of holocaust survivors

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Tom Zigon works to preserve the voices, and experiences of holocaust survivors, to ensure history does not repeat itself.

"It's something I've personally been interested in since high school learning about the holocaust and the atrocities that were perpetrated," said Zigon. 

Tom has been compiling interviews from survivors like Erich and Ellen Arndt, as the aging survivor population continues to wane.

"We're working trying to capture that for future generations and make people aware of what really did happen," said Zigon. 

Bonnie Abrams, whose parents both survived concentration camps has a similar mission.

"It is our hope through holocaust education that when they grow up to be the leaders that they'll finally put an end to genocide," said Abrams.
